    All enegry saving appliances macho. apart from the fridge freezer. If the bill is less than 25,000 like earlier months i dont mind. Seems like now I have to cut most of the spending

    I'd rather do the math first. If you were to buy an inverter fridge, that will set you in the north of 200K. That will save you like what, 5,000 a month?

    Now that you know you take 600kWh/month, and the majority of it is during the day time for the A/C, invest in a solar system with 5-10kW. You don't have to spend a lot on batteries (just get 48V100AH LiFePo4 or lead-acid in series for 48V200AH), but shell out some eye watering money on good quality solar panels and an inverter that can work split-phase (so you can add multiple inverters in the future if it comes to that). The whole system will cost you around 1.5 million, but with a bill saving at around 25,000 / month, your investment will pay itself off in five years, with 10-15 life time left on the solar system. This is assuming there will be no inflation of CEB prices, but we all know they will jack up the prices in a year or two.

    For a fridge like im using if im to buy an inverter model it will cost more than 800,000 macho. so what u say is correct.. time for solar
